Good morning! Social worker and activist GRACE ABBOTT on child labor: “Child labor and poverty are inevitably bound together and if you continue to use the labor of children as the treatment for the social disease of poverty, you will have both poverty and child labor to the end of time.” Born in Nebraska, Abbott (1878 – 1939), graduated from Grand Island College in 1898. Before embarking on her career in social work, she worked as a high school teacher in her hometown. In 1907, she moved to Chicago and took up residency in Hull House. She received a Master’s degree in political science from the University of Chicago and wrote a series of weekly articles in the Chicago Evening Post, titled ‘Within the City's Gates’ from 1909-1910, which brought to light the exploitation of immigrants.(Lewis Hine photos)
Aba: A City in ruins Aba, the commercial nerve centre of Abia State, is lying prostrate, in ut ter ruins. It is in shackles, bruised and battered. And no one seems to care. Worse still, the residents have been cowed. So, they see no evil and speak no evil because they are afraid of the son of a top elected official in the state nicknamed Whirlwind. In Abia, the fear of Whirlwind is the beginning of wisdom. If you incur the wrath of Whirlwind, you will have yourself to blame. Aba has fallen from grace to grass. It has lost its former glory that dressed it in the admirable robe of the eastern commer­cial pride and made it attractive to investors and business people from within and outside the region. The vibrancy that defined the city is gone and the once thriving city is a shadow of it self. Today, Aba is a terrible and indescrib­able sight. Indeed, words are not enough to capture the present state of the once famous Enyimba City. As Lewis Hine said, “if I could tell the story (of Aba) in words I would ...

Children six years old going home to lie on a straw pallet until time to resume work the next morning! I have seen the hair torn out of their heads by the machinery, their scalps torn off, and yet not a single tear was shed, while the poodle dogs were loved and caressed and carried to the seashore.” Images: Henry, 10 year old oyster shucker who does five pots of oysters a day. Has worked before school, after school, and Saturdays for three years at the Maggioni Canning Co., Port Royal, SC. Tiny, seven year old oyster shucker (Henry's sister) does not go to school and has worked steady for one year. Lewis Hine photos, Feb 1912.

“Child in Carolina Cotton Mill” by Lewis Hine, 1908 This looks so much like Grandma!!
Brothers and Sisters, Throughout our nation’s history brave men and women have stood up and spoken out about unsafe and unjust working conditions. From Upton Sinclair’s book “The Jungle” which exposed the awful conditions in meatpacking plants at the turn of the century and led to inspections of our nation's food supply to Lewis Wickes Hine, a teacher who traveled Indiana and the nation in the early 1900’s photographing children working in dangerous situations, resulting in the creation of child labor laws and of compulsory schooling requirements, everyday working people exposing bad practices have made a difference. Now, thanks to a proposal being advanced in the Indiana State Senate, the work of Upton Sinclair, Lewis Hine and others would be a crime. Senate Bill 373, authored by Senator Travis Holdman (R-Markle), would make it illegal for workers, journalists or others to photograph or record video of unsafe, discriminatory or otherwise unethical work place practices. Documenting what is has a ...
Liberal = Democrat = "the righteous". Does this kind of propaganda backfire on anyone else? I was favorable towards the DNC until they equated requesting voter ID with raping and murdering. Both Republicans and Democrats helped define child labor laws. Republicans worked primarily through the states. But the state laws were not consistently enforced. Democrats attempted several federal acts. But they failed constitutionally until the commerce clause was invoked. Throughout the 1800s, Massachusetts Whig / Republicans pioneered labor laws, including the first child labor law in 1836. In 1906 Senator Beveridge (R-Ind.) and Representative Herbert Parsons (R-N.Y.) introduced legislation to prevent employment of children in factories and mines. In 1912 Taft (R- Pres.) signed the United States Children's Bureau into law. Lewis Hine traveled across America taking pictures and interviewed child laborers and their families. He exposed the injustice of child labor. In 1916 Senator Robert Owen (D-Okla.) and Represent ...

hotparade: Lewis Hine - Waiting for the dispensary to open Hull House District, Chicago, 1910
As one can imagine, with its growing demand for a workforce that suited the machines – rather than vice versa – the Industrial Revolution was not the best time for laws being passed that helped to improve working conditions – not least for children. In spite of this, part of the work of the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC), formed in 1904, was to raise awareness about the conditions and risks that tens of thousands of children had to face every day in the United States alone. The gritty reality of life underground, here at Gary Mine in Gary, WV: A mining car with a bank boss (with the lamp between his knees), motorman, brakeboy and driver. The boss apparently said “he would use more boys if he could get them but they went to school.” The NCLC’s investigative photographer Lewis Hine (1874-1940) took on the important mission of traveling the United States to document the working conditions of children. Hine carried out this work from 1908 to 1924, with the 5,100 and more photographs he took ...
